BEGINNER KNITTING COURSE

CIRCULAR NEEDLES

Knitting on circular needles is one of the easiest ways to create a hat, a sweater, a cowl, etc. The hardest part of circular knitting is simply joining the two ends together to create the circle. Here is a video showing exactly how it is done. 

A quick and fun project is a simple cowl scarf. Here is my quick pattern for you:
